Solar power is blooming marvellous in Hereford
An 80 kW solar PV system at The Rose Garden Extracare village in Hereford is expected to produce over 67 MWh of electricity a year, saving each resident around £80 a year on energy bills and 33.5 t of CO2 savings. This major investment by Festival Housing, owner of the Rose Garden, was installed by Eco2Solar following competitive tendering. It is Festival Housing’s largest installation of solar panels to date.
The installation comprises 245 panels. All electricity generated will be used on site, and the project will benefit from the Feed-in Tariff.
As part of its on-going partnership with Festival Housing, Eco2Solar has recently completed solar PV installation on 180 domestic homes in Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
Paul Hutchens, managing director of Eco2Solar, says, ‘We are delighted to strengthen our partnership and help Festival generate its own electricity at The Rose Garden.’
